WCVA logo 2020Alongside the NHS and other emergency services carrying out vital roles during this crisis, there are also charities, community groups, social enterprises and other voluntary organisations delivering essential services. They must not be forgotten.

Staff and volunteers for some services will inevitably also need personal protective equipment (PPE) such as face masks, protective clothing, gloves and cleaning products.

Their important services must continue, but we must ensure they are safeguarded.

WCVA is working closely with Welsh Government to be able to provide avenues for supplying these products. Welsh Government is also working with manufacturers to meet demands by creating products they have never created before.

Get in touch with Emma Waldron on [email protected] who will work with you to understand your requirements and will provide you with assistance on accessing frameworks to understand what level of protection it is that your group needs.

You can also be added to their PPE mailing list, to be made aware of when new supplies appropriate to your level of need become available.
